The John Munch one doesn't go far enough. According to all his appearances, the Law & Order franchise, Homicide: Life on the Streets, Arrested Development, Sesame Street, X-Files, Lone Gunmen, and The Wire share the same universe, and he's mentioned in an episode of the BBC series Luther.

It's Detective John Munch's world, we are merely allowed to occupy it.

The list fails without Firefly & BSG or Smallville & Dukes of Hazard.

Yup. I think Kate and Granny were cousins or something like that

I don't think 3rd Rock and Twilight Zone classify as crossovers since the characters in 3rd Rock were not the same characters as in Twilight Zone.

Homicide took place in the same universe as St. Elswhere, so we are all in the Tommyverse, and Munch is Tommy's favorite.

So a writer making a reference to another show counts as a crossover?

Naturally only applies to the first couple of shows on the list.

The 3rd Rock joke was a fan service joke, not a crossover:

Sally: So how was your trip, sir?

Big Giant Head: Horrifying! I looked out the window...I saw something on the wing of the plane!

Dick: The same thing happened to me!


...silly list is silly.

As a bunch of Twin Peaks actors were in that episode, I'm going with homage.

Don't forget the Cheers/St. Elsewhere crossover.

And since St. Elsewhere was revealed to exist only in the autism-fueled head of Tommy Westphal, Cheers (and by association, everything related to it: Frasier, Wings, Caroline in the City, Friends, Mad About You and Seinfeld, et al) should be considered part of Tommy's delusion, too.

RoyBatty: I don't think 3rd Rock and Twilight Zone classify as crossovers since the characters in 3rd Rock were not the same characters as in Twilight Zone.


You're right. But it was a clever reference, one of the best jokes they did on the show. I think it might qualify as an in-joke for the nerds, geeks, hipsters and SF comedy fans that get the reference--a small thundering herd of viewers not unlike the thundering herds of bison that once roamed the plains and woods of North America.

Since the two characters on 3rd Rock aren't the same characters as on the Twilight Zone episodes, that means four unfortunate men had the same problem with gremlins on commercial flights. What airline were they flying? The planes must be infested with gremlins worse than at any time since WWII.

Then again, maybe the characters were the same. After all, wouldn't the Big Giant Head and Dick be travelling under aliases? They couldn't register as their alien selves, could they? But that is a bit shaky. After all, the Twilight Episode with Shatner was before his rise to fame as Captain Kirk in the 1960s. He did a number of shows before the big break came. Also, he was a Shakespearean actor back in Canada, which is where he got his corny over-emphasis from. Works better on stage.

You'd be surprised at some of his pre-Star Trek roles. For example, did you know he was Ranger Bob on Howdy Doody? He played a lot of doctors, cowboys, cops, and so forth as well.

SpdrJay: X-files/Picket Fences.


You're my new best friend.

Actually, put them all together and you could claim that "The X Files," "Picket Fences," "Homicide," "Chicago Hope," "Law and Order," and all their umpteen zillion spin-offs are all in the same universe.

They forgot Alphas in the WH 13/Eureka crossover. The doc from Warehouse was called into to help the Alphas team.

In the episode The Firefly, Walter Bishop pulls out a pair of glasses with red and blue lenses similar to those worn by Dr. Jacoby in Twin Peaks.

To bad they didn't use a piece of Laura Palmer's clothing, which turns nice girls into sluts (although it may also attract BOB).

From Wiki:
Dr. Vanessa Calder () is the official Warehouse physician and, as a cover, works for the (CDC). Artie, who is attracted to Vanessa, was using an artifact to regrow his appendix every year for Vanessa to remove, until he was emboldened by Pete's advice to ask her on a date. Vanessa and Artie have feelings for each other, which they finally admit at the end of the "Love Sick" episode. Vanessa was also called upon in the episode "Buried" to care for Mrs. Frederic when her brain was being eclipsed by Warehouse 2; she was prepared to transfer the status of Caretaker from Mrs. Frederic to Claudia, but this was resolved when Warehouse 2 was shut down. Dr. Calder also appears in the episode "Never Let Me Go", establishing that, along with,  Alphas takes place in the same continuity as  Warehouse 13.

And I also seem to remember an X-Men/ST:TOS crossover before that.

Spock(?): Dr. McCoy.
Hank and Bones: Yes?

Or something like that. Also I think Spock put Wolverine down with a neck pinch.

She plays some of those crazy, super intelligent clones on X-Files, and a detective or something in the first season of Millennium.  I always wondered if she was one of the clones that worked, and didn't go nuts.

I'd read a theory somewhere that the surface of the world in the Jetsons was this post apocalyptic wasteland populated with giant lizards and those people unlucky enough to live in the upper cities.

Shows/Movies that are in the same universe

Darma and Greg/TWO 1/2 MEN Last season Darma and Greg look at the beach house
Fringe/Lost A mention of the Darpa Initiative and showing a logo
Cloverfield/Lost Again logo shown
Stretch... Star Wars/Star Trek R2D2 is shown in a few shots in ST and Lucas along time ago  said the mention of a transporter tech (when the falcon gets captured in episode 4) was a nod
StarGate Universe/Once Upon a Time There is a mention about Mr Gold being on a ship far away

These shows were on five different networks: Homicide: Life on the Street, Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Trial by Jury, and 30 Rock); The X-Files and Arrested Development); The Beat); The Wire) and Jimmy Kimmel Live!). Munch has been one of the few television characters to cross genres, appearing not only in crime drama series, but sitcom (Arrested Development), late night comedy (Jimmy Kimmel Live!) and horror and science fiction (The X-Files).[39] He has played a role in international television series, beginning with UK crime drama where he is mentioned as an American contact for the series' Serious Crime Unit (SCU). Notably Luther stars The Wire
A sketch "Law & Order: Special Letters Unit" where he was portrayed by
